With a strong and loyal underground following, ANDALÉ is no stranger to the industry. A Christian Hip-Hop artist since 2001, ANDALÉ has recorded 3 independently successful albums (I’m Not Worthy, Trial By Fire, White Flag) and two critically acclaimed mixtapes (Voice of Reason 1 and 2). He’s also shared platforms with heavy-hitters such as Kirk Franklin, Da T.r.u.t.h, J-Moss, Canton Jones and Mr. Del. He has had the privilege of recording with Grammy nominated producers Incorporated Elements (Grits) and Kelvin Wooten (Anthony Hamilton, and Talib Kweli, Nappy Roots Mary J. Blige, Outkast, Yolanda Adams, Mary Mary, Donnie McClurkin).
2013 marks the year that ANDALÉ will step out from behind the shadows and become firmly planted into the consciousness of the music industry at large. With a new passion, a new sound, and new management, ANDALÉ is poised to take his message and his ministry to a new level. The appropriately titled “Higher” is the first single from his highly anticipated, game-changing project SMOKE & MIRRORS slated for a fall 2013 release. “Higher” is a universal call to all people that it is time to reach beyond mediocrity, beyond superficiality, beyond mistakes of the past, and move to a higher level of holiness, strength, and success through the power of God. “Higher” will be available on iTunes July 23.
